- First, a big welcome to everyone who is in town for the Everywhere Else start-up conference. If you need anything, just ask – I'm @ilovememphis on Twitter.

- Sports writer Frank Murtaugh made a list of the top 15 Tiger basketball players of all time, and DJ Stephens didn't make the list. There's a reason, though. Sort of.

- A majority of Tennesseeans want grocery stores to start selling wine. Obviously.

- Attention job seekers: professional resume writer Barbara Herman is giving a free talk tonight.

- Tony Allen is an artist, a theif and an enthusiastic trash talker. He's also one of the NBA's best defenders (but you knew that already).

- MSN named Memphis as one of the best places in the country to celebrate Black History Month.

- Want to know what the orginal Stax recording studio was like? Check out this archival footage of a 1969 studio session.
